The great Villa constructed by the Emperor Hadrian near Tivoli between A.D. 118 and the 130s is one of the most original monuments in the history of architecture and art. In this beautiful book, two distinguished architectural historians describe and interpret the Villa as it existed in Roman times and track its extraordinary effect on architects and artists up to the present day."This lavishly illustrated book ... is the most ample and informed work on the villa, its figurative decoration and sculpture collection, and the first study of its reception over the past 500 years.... An essential source of information on one of the glories of Western architecture". -- James S. Ackerman, Times Literary Supplement"Authoritative and highly readable, attractively designed with many fine photographs that complement (but do not dominate) the text, it is hard to imagine this study being superseded". -- Architects Journal"A comprehensive account of the villa in its heyday and its long afterlife". -- Martin Filler, New York Times Book Review
